I just came back from the International Film Festival of Rotterdam and saw La ville des Pirates in a retrospective about Ruiz's work. Why didn't I know about this man and his sheer genius? This film has the quality of a Godard or a Truffaut.... Or better yet...He is another Bunuel! His surrealistic tale about the adventures of a young woman regaining her balance in a disturbed world is mind-blowing. So powerful, witty, intellectual and colorful.
Mr. Ruiz I salute you
